Hi there, It seems MRI is picking up an abnormality which needs further evaluation. The report BIRADS 4 means there is some probability of being malignant (range from 3% to 94%) which literally means that biopsy has to be done. Most probably your doctor will recommend a biopsy by needle to look into it.Take care
